*Avoid mowing lawns or garden chores. Wear a filtration face mask if you must mow.

*Don’t let pets get close to your face, as they can carry pollen in their fur. Wipe pets’ coats with a damp microfibre cloth to remove pollens when they have been out.

*If you do go out try to after a rain shower when there has been a drop in levels.

*Apply an effective allergen barrier balm around the edge of each nostril to trap or block pollens and other allergens and help prevent a reaction. 

*Keep eyes covered with wraparound sunglasses to keep pollen allergens out of eyes.

*Wear a hat with a peak or large brim to keep pollens from your eyes and face.

*In the car keep windows closed and the air intake on ‘re-circulate’ and use the pollen filter if the car has one or get an in-car air filter.
